AmbientAura  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 1.2
by: Seerah [More]
It's Back! Now updated for Cataclysm!

This will not work on the live realms, as it uses a new function from the Cata client.
Since the previous models had disappeared, the new models are different. But this means that I finally found some that I like. Screenshots have been updated.



This addon creates a swirly fog effect along the bottom of your screen using animated models from the game, colored by combat/resting status. Height and alpha of the fog are configurable.

It was inspired by FogBG by yleaf, which creates frames that hold the blue fog to use as backgrounds for the elements of your UI. AmbienceAura, however, places the fog along the bottom of your screen, and will color green if resting, red if in combat, or blue if normal.


New in version 1.1
There is a new dropdown menu in the options, where you can select how to use AmbientAura. Settings are also now stored per character. You can use AmbientAura to display:
- Combat/Resting
This is how AmbientAura works by default.
- In Combat = red
- Resting = green
- Normal = blue
- Warrior stances
- Battle stance = red
- Defensive stance = blue
- Berserker stance = green
- Death Knight auras
- Blood presence = red
- Frost presence = blue
- Unholy presence = green
- Red fog always
- Blue fog always
- Green fog always

FAQ:

Where are the options?
The options panel is located on the addons page of the Interface Options panel. Hit escape, go to Interface, click the AddOns tab, and you'll see AmbientAura listed there. You can also get there by /ambientaura or /aa.

I want the fog easier to see (or to see through).
You can find sliders to set both the height and alpha/density of the fog in its options panel.

How can I give feedback?
Feel free to leave your comments/questions here, but all bug reports and feature requests need to go to my portal if you want me to remember to do them.

Can I use your code/textures?
All use of my code separate from AmbientAura must be for your own personal use and may not be redistributed separate from the addon. You may use snippets of my code in addons you intend to distribute only after receiving permission, and credit must be given.

Can I redistribute this addon?
My addons may only be redistributed in UI compilations, and any mention of the addon must point to its download page or my portal, both on wowinterface.

Cata is live now, so you can use it on "live". The description was written while testing in the beta, and the dates from the below comments are from that time, too. I was having fps issues with this addon still though, so it went on the back-burner for more important projects. And then it kinda fell off.

It should still work just fine, except it'll bog down your fps.

This error was thrown on beta? I haven't tried it since the new build.

Well as I am sure you know this addon doesn't work anymore, I was wondering if and when you find the time could you update this. it's a major part of my UI structure and my UI just seems empty ever since it was gone.

It seems that there is a problem in 3.2 with the fog textures (other people are having issues as well). I haven't had time to look into it yet, though.
